If you haven’t noticed the World of Outlaws currents points battle heating up then you haven’t been paying attention.  Over the past four weeks, the spread between the top 3 contenders has closed from over 100 points to within 38 points after the completion of Friday night’s race at Eldora Speedway.  But the real heat is between the top two with Jason Meyers trailing Donny Schatz by only 9 points with 8 features left in this 2009 season.

 Meyers lined up in the 5th row of the A main .  As the green flag waved, Meyers raced underneath Darrah down the front chute and into 1, but then Darrah used momentum around the top to move back past off of turn 2.  On the first restart Meyers went low to try and take the 7th position, but was unable to make the pass.  Meyers continued to try to find a hole with no success.  On lap 12, the caution flew again for the flat RR of new leader Terry McCarl.  Again another restart, but still no passing.  Finally Meyers was able to pass the 15H of Hafertepe off of turn 4 to move into the 6th position.  On lap 17, the red flag flew for the #2 car of Dale Blaney.  Prior to the red flag, Meyers had closed on the 3c of Conley and on the restart Meyers went way up in the cushion and made the pass around the 3c machine.  Meyers had now moved into the 5th position and was hot on the heels of the #89 of Darrah.  Then  Darrah and Saldana touched sending Darrah into the inside wall.  Meyers just cleared Darrah almost clipping him and possibly ending his night.  The crash moved Meyers into the 4th position directly behind the #9 of Joey Saldana.
 
     On the restart with only 4 laps to go, Meyers went high to try and pass Saldana but could not gain enough momentum.  The two cars raced nose to tail for the remaining laps with Jason Sides taking the win, followed by Tim Shaffer, Joey Saldana, Jason Meyers, and Cale Conley rounding out the top 5.
 
     The 4th place finish for Meyers versus the 6th place finish of championship point’s leader Donny Schatz moved Meyers to within on 9 points now.  With rain canceling the Saturday night at Lernerville, the two will head into one of the toughest tracks in the country next weekend separated by 9 mere points.  “This is our chance.  You don’t get these chances every day and this is it.  The #15 team and the #9 team are two of the toughest teams in the business and I can see this being a fight right down to the end.  We are ready for, and to be honest, looking forward to it,” said Meyers.

INDY 500 – Helio Castroneves, Indocil Art & The Andretti’s

by ryanyoung on May.25, 2009, under Indocil News, Racer News

I hate to make the first post on the bog almost a negative but it is killing me and I need to vent. I missed having a helmet in victory lane at the Indy 500! I got a call a few weeks ago asking if we wanted to add a new customer to our list of drivers. The driver was getting back into racing after having to be on the sidelines and needed his helmets painted. No problem except his helmets are based in a chrome finish and we wouldn’t be able to get it done in time for the 500. I went ahead and did one in a different finish to see if he would want it for a one off deal just for the 500. I did it but it wasn’t what he wanted to go with so we would just have to wait for his helmets to comeback from chrome. In the mean time Helio Castroneves won the damn Indianapolis 500!!! Missed seeing my helmet in victory lane at the 500!!!!!! Man the agony!!!!! Congratulations to Indocils newest driver though.2009-684

I did however get to see great coverage of our helmet for Marco Andretti. The only problem was the coverage came after he was wrecked in the first few laps ending his day abruptly. What a kick in the gut!

John Andretti had a good run in the Window World car driven for Richard Petty. It was great seeing the King in Indy. It looked like a perfect fit.
